Sanford and Son - TV Shows
Redd Foxx is one the the great stand up comics. But Fred Sanford was an obnoxious old reprobate who offended and insulted everyone around him ...not in a funny way. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:38 pm

CSI - TV Shows
Just how many versions must we tolerate? Will we tune in one day to find "CSI: Hooterville"? Is Hollywood completely bereft of creativity now? -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:33 pm

George Lopez - TV Shows
His stereotyped portrayal of Latin-American men sets their cause back at least fifty years. Distasteful, disrespectful, and not funny. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:29 pm

Hazel - TV Shows
This show stunk from the start, simply because it so often used an odious plot device I've come to call "The Hazel Syndrome" (or "The Law of Instant Expertise"). This is that ridiculous situation in which someone like Hazel is always an expert in the current plot twist; for example, if the guest star is a baseball player, Hazel will be able to strike him out easily; if he's a pool shark, she will run the table every time; if he's a poker player, she'll bankrupt him ...even though no mention is made of such abilities in any other episode. Not to mention this show set a standard for overbearing, interfering maids which persists to this day. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:25 pm

Access Hollywood - TV Shows
While I cannot fathom why, if you've any interest in who's dating who, in who's wearing what, or who's living in whose house ...I guess you would like this show. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:14 pm

America's Funniest People - TV Shows
Want to win the big money on this show? Submit a video of a baby doing anything. Those always win. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:09 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
In general I still enjoy "The Next Degradation" (as Mad Magazine called it), but it has many flaws. 1 - being a bridge officer requires experience and maturity, not just knowledge; so any episode involving Wesley is garbage. 2 - too much techno-babble; every quandary was resolved with "we can divert the frimmelblat stream through the interdimensional coffee filter and rephase the output of the magnetic phisbin to create a flatulence field..." 3 - later seasons became just silly, with ghost stories and too much time travel 4 - too many technical inconsistencies; something easily accomplished in one episode is deemed nearly impossible in another 5 - everyone is astounded by Data ...yet in at least two episodes of the original series, highly developed androids were encountered 6 - if the Enterprise is the flagship of Starfleet, and it's on a mission of exploration ...why does it spend most of its time tooling around colonized and settled areas, often doing the work of a freighter? -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:05 pm

Everybody loves Raymond - TV Shows
"Everybody Loathes Raymond"? Ranks as one of hte most detestable programs I've ever watched. The lead character is one of the most lowbrow, self-absorbed, self-centered, sexist, ageist, offensive miscreants ever to befoul our airwaves. I've seen 14 year old boys with more mature attitudes about sex, not to mention any other aspect of life. The only greater mystery than what an intelligent modern woman like Debra ever saw in this oaf is whatever possessed the network to keep this disgusting drivel on the air for so long. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 8:43 pm

Academy Awards, The - Random Topics
For the past thirty years the Academy Awards have been nothing but a fashion show. For the week after the ceremonies all you hear about is what all the ladies were wearing. What about the movies? -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 8:34 pm

American Idol - TV Shows
"The Gong Show" without the fun. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:52 am

Press Your Luck - TV Shows
The stupid animated "whammy" superimposed in the screen, and the retarded behaviour of most contestants killed this for me. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:51 am

Gong Show, The - TV Shows
A 100% improvement over the likes of America's Newest Idol or Dancing With the Stars. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:48 am

Modern Marvels - TV Shows
Modern Marvels was once about interesting topics such as teh Transcontinental Railroad, satellites, or the Brooklyn Bridge. Now there's the history of supermarkets, Rocks, Doors, Underwear, Dirt. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:45 am

Deal Or No Deal - TV Shows
This show ranks as the absolute, all time, worst excuse for a game show ever to befoul the air waves. They could bring out a chimpanzee to point at the cases and he would have the same chance of winning as any of the human contestants. The entire game could be played in two minutes if they didn't have the vacuous Mr Mandel explaining the "rules" every other breath; not to mention that idiotic cell phone to the "banker". And why do the people opening the cases get so worked up over whether the contestant wins or not? Do they get a piece of the action? I can honestly state that in over fifty years of watching television I have never seen anything as abysmal, as mindless, as infuriatingly stupid, as "Deal or No Deal". -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:35 am

Bosom Buddies - TV Shows
Honestly, could either of those guys have passed as women anywhere except on this idiotic show? That ruined the entire concept for me. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:25 am

Jerry Springer Show, The - TV Shows
This show jumped/boned when the focus shifted from the guests to seeing how often the audience can be induced to jump up and chant "Jer-ry..Jer-ry..." And the fights are obviously faked. If two people are on stage for more than a couple of minutes without taking a swing at each other, the stage manager rings his little bell (ding, ding, ding) and the people immediately lunge at each other. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:23 am

Sale of the Century - TV Shows
Contestants couldn't keep their winnings, they had to keep buying overpriced merchandise til they could afford nothing more, then got a gift certificate for the remaining amount. "I'd like to buy that pack of gum for $75, and the light bulb for $99" -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:18 am

FOX News - TV Shows
They constantly moan and carp that too much of the media is biased to the the left, yet Fox is so biased to the right that their complaints smack of hypocrisy. Bias is bias, no matter which way it runs. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:09 am

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
"All In the Family" without the family. Doomed from the start. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:06 am

Flo - TV Shows
Take the most obnoxious character from an obnoxious sitcom and spin it off into another sitcom. Who thought this was a good idea? -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 1:04 am
